Dave,

Please note that I suggested using the PSN idle timer to recycle
VCs as a WORKAROUND; it certainly isn't the proper long-term
RESOLUTION. That is more likely to be the rebuilding of the
driver that you suggest.

You mention that packets "get lost if traffic is flowing at the
time of the VC CLEAR." If we use an IDLE timer to generate the
clear, wouldn't we mostly avoid the problem -- because we clear
when it's idle -- i.e., no traffic flowing?

Regards,
 Ken
